  1. Late round find? https://www.baseballamerica.com/players/106055/kerry-carpenter/ Kerry Carpenter #59 | OF | Tigers Connecticut Tigers Name: Kerry William Carpenter Born: Sep 2, 1997 in Eustis, Florida USA College: Virginia Tech Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 220 lbs Bats: L / Throws: R AB AVG OBP SLG HR 2019 176 .307 .387 .585 9 Career 176 .307 .387 .585 9 Drafted in the 19th round (562nd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2019 (signed for $125,000) Career Statistics 2019 Game Logs 2019 Splits Spring Training Year Age Club LG Class AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO SB CS GIDP OBP SLG OPS 2019 21 Tigers West GCL R .323 42 158 32 51 16 3 9 33 20 18 6 0 3 .409 .633 1.042 2019 21 Connecticut NYP SS .167 4 18 1 3 0 0 0 1 0 3 1 0 1 .167 .167 .333 Minor League Totals .307 46 176 33 54 16 3 9 34 20 21 7 0 4 .387 .585 .972
  2. Just making a rough list of players who might be available for the rule V draft and the first pick: Marcus Wilson OF Boston Kevin Cron 1b Arizona Jose Siri OF Cincinnati Zach Burdi RP Chisox Jared Walsh 1b/LHP Angels DJ Peters OF/1b Dodgers Nick Gordon SS Twins Jorge Mateo SS/OF Oakland Greg Deichmann OF Oakland Buddy Reed OF Padres Taylor Hearn LHP Rangers Some of these players are on the roster, like Hearn; but may be in danger of losing 40 man.
  3. The idea is to bring in some prospects, kinda like the Dodgers have done.
  4. Kind of an interesting point made in mlbtr chat that the Tigers should take on a salary like Wil Myers, as long as the Padres give some quality prospects in this deal. He'd also fit a need at 1st base.
  5. Are you aware there is 40 rounds in each draft? Most are not elite.
  6. Blaze Jordan, 3B/1B DeSoto Central HS, Southaven, Miss. Perhaps the most famous player in the 2020 draft class, Jordan had a strong summer and was arguably the best hitter at the UAAAG, where he went 2-for-5 and routinely barreled impressive fastball velocity and stayed back on breaking pitches with ease. Jordan combines impressive natural strength and above-average bat speed, though he showed some swing-and-miss throughout the rest of the circuit, including an 0-for-4 performance with four strikeouts at the PGAAC. Still, he has some of the best raw power in the class, with a fairly advanced approach for his age (he’ll be 17.5 at the time of the draft) and is giving himself a chance to stick at third base. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/here-are-13-mlb-draft-prospects-who-impressed-scouts-this-summer/
  7. Actually, no. Just the elite of each class are considered "famous".
  8. A famous prospect is one who's been followed/scouted throughout high school and summer showcases like perfect game, etc. by most of baseball.
  9. I guess the Tigers have this thing figured out, but why didn't they claim Kean Wong? He was claimed by the Angels, seems like he would have fit in perfect at 2b.
  10. I saw an interview with Littlefield, the org. wants the bat at SS if possible. They know he's really a 3b, and that's probably his best position. He has plenty arm for either.
  11. Buddha's gotta Buddha. He hasn't played any 2b in the minors. He's playing more 3rd base, which is his preference. The Tigers want his bat at SS, so they're force-feeding him SS at least two games per week, and in the fall league.
  12. MIke: The Tigers have essentially wrapped up the #1 pick next year. What are the chances Austin Martin becomes that pick? Seems like he checks off the most boxes of the top guys. 1:01 Kiley McDaniel: I’d say Martin, Torkelson and Hancock are kinds three-way tied at this point. Tork is like Vaughn and won’t change much in terms of stock. Hancock could slide ahead if he’s healthy all year and shoves akin to Mize. Martin could be a Swanson/Bregman type if he keeps progressing and a strong season for him would trump the other two. Anyone else is a real longshot at this point, like maybe 10-15% at best? 1:01 Kiley McDaniel: I’ll say Martin – 40% Hancock – 30% Torkelson – 25% Other – 5%
  13. Eugenio is on his fantasy team.
  14. They are likely to lose ten spots with their first pick due to luxury tax penalties.
  15. One of my favorite parts of Woodstock the Movie. Love this tune.
  16. Yes, but that's how you acquire the top talents, with top picks.
  17. Every prediction is wrong. New England will not make the playoffs. The Lions will.
  18. Yes! It's fantastic! Of course. Now it has been almost a week since they've released new music...can't wait for the next one. I know they're coming to town, but I've already seen them three times, and I'm fine with that.
  19. I have a theory that Wentz did much better for Erie than Mississippi in the SL (down year for hitters in the EL); this will probably be good for his development due to confidence, and I can see that with his improved BB rate (SSS).
